    Employee Matching Gift or United Way Corporate Campaigns.

    Many companies match charitable donations made by employees. Check with your employer to see if they will match your donation to Kingsway College School and increase the impact your gift will have on KCS students.

    You can also designate Kingsway College School as one of your charities of choice when participating in a United Way corporate campaign. Please contact Hallie at hmcclelland@kcs.on.ca for more details on this process.

    Gift of securities.

    By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you would have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You will also receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.

    Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact. Then ask your broker to transfer your securities to Kingsway College School by completing the Securities Donation Form.

    Finally, please let us know you intend to make your gift so that we can show our appreciation.
